BiographyNOW Makes History with Hiring of Stephanie Cheuvront


“Bringing Families Together Through Life Stories of Loved Ones”

BiographyNOW, a new company that writes and publishes personalized life stories that are linked with history, today announced the hiring of a resident historian to oversee the company’s extensive proprietary Historical Content Library.


Stephanie Cheuvront, who has worked at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, the Capitoline Museum in Rome and the Indiana State Museum in Indianapolis, will now work to make history interesting and accessible as part of BiographyNOW’s “Life and Times” hardcover books.


“Stephanie brings a passion for history and an understanding of how to make it relevant and fun through wonderful stories that families will enjoy sharing,” said Hayes Ferguson, BiographyNOW’s president and COO. “We are delighted to have her on board as part of our team.”


BiographyNOW’s handcrafted, coffee table books can be used to commemorate milestones such as birthdays and retirements or to pay tribute to a close relative or ancestor. A BiographyNOW biographer works with each customer after collecting basic information through an easy-to-use menu-driven website and then conducts a telephone interview. The personalized life story books contain about 40 pages of professionally-written narrative, photos and historical pieces.


“I am excited to spend each day immersed in history,” said Cheuvront, who has a B.A. in history and classical studies from Butler University and M.A. in museum studies from The George Washington University. “I am also thrilled that I get to share history with customers who want a unique way to celebrate the people, places, and events in their lives.”


BiographyNOW is part of MemoryVentures, a fast-growing portfolio of companies that includes ScanDigital, which will help customers digitize old photos to be included in the books. BiographyNOW books are currently available only on a selective basis, but will soon will be available to the public.
